Surf  

The archipelago is surfable throughout the year but the best conditions are from March to October.

With an average size of 2 to 4 meters, which is more consistent from June to September.
From November to March, hopefully 1-2 meter perfect waves in less frequented spots.

You will have to think about a spare leash, fins, wax and a repair kit.
For the board selection, it’s up to you, but we recommend you bring a quiver with 2-3 surfboards:

- 6.0 to 6.3    
- 6.6 to 6.10
- 7.0 and higher

You can surf in short, temperature water is 27 degrees centigrade on average. A top long sleeve remains highly recommended for sun protection.
It’s best to also bring booties, the reefs are alive.

Cruise  

We pick you up at Sibolga airport, then you’ll go straight on to the ship where you will chill out in your cabin.

In order not to miss any day of surfing, crossing to Banyak islands will be done during the night (same for return).
At dawn, you can already have your first surf in this pristine paradise.

There is a potential of about thirty waves, including twenty known waves and a dozen more secret.

The captain will share all this knowledge and his secret for finding the ideal conditions of the day.

The 2 European surf guides (speaking English, French, Spanish and Indonesian) in consultation with the captain will offer you many options that you will decide on.

Throughout the way, you will have the opportunity to chose a variety of other activities like walking on the beaches, snorkelling and spear fishing.
